    I also had a problem w/ Sigourney agreeing to be in that crap for the money, I've always been highly impressed by Jodie Foster who refused to be in Hannibal after she read what they did to her character.

    He could avoid 3 & 4 by not putting Ripley in it. Just have a marines story. I liked Sigourney a lot in 1 & 2, but she was in all 4, time to leave her dead or cloned or whatever.

    i'm telling you: Aliens vs. Jack Dawson - Love Conquers All.

    or maybe cameron could just do aliens 2 all over again with new special-effects - that way no one would have to be challenged by new ideas. i see how that sort of thing really annoys some of you.

    Must be why you like Alien 3. [​IMG]

    I really hope that whatever they decide to do that they're able to resurrect this francise from the dead, it deserves better than Alien 3 and 4.

    actually, i used to like alien 3 - once i discovered that the majority of movie-goers didn't like it, i changed my mind because the only thing i hate more than new ideas is having to think for myself.

    Personally, I'd like to see Cameron give us something fresh and just plain leave Ripley behind. Move on to something new, maybe based on the marines like somebody above mentioned.

    You seem to think that because we didn't like Alien3 it must have gone over our heads. Tis not the case. We, or I should say I, just didn't like the direction they chose to take the story in. Attempting to paint others who don't share your opinion as not willing to "think about stuff" is ridiculous.

    There's not one thing about Alien3 I would want them to retain in continuing the series. The film was a terrible excuse for a sequel. IMHO, of course.

    Bah, just imagine how weird this will be, with the Alien Quadrilology (sp?) DVD set coming out and all. First another Indiana Jones movie, and now this. [​IMG] Also, I'm with some of the others regarding James Cameron at the helm of another Alien movie in that, frankly, as long as it's done well, I don't care who directs it.

    It seems like everyone is giving Cameron total ownership over anything Aliens... Let's not forget that Cameron took over the franchise himself from Ridley Scott.
